God sends 2 more ex-employees to test Bill O'Reilly with defamation lawsuit

In October, Bill O’Reilly spoke out about the sexual harassment allegations that got him fired from Fox News by announcing that he’s “mad at God” for not giving him enough “protection.” Unfortunately, God isn’t done testing O’Reilly just yet, as Variety is reporting that he has summoned two former Fox News employees…

Can someone get Bill O'Reilly a decent tailor, please?

We don’t normally think of Bill O’Reilly—a man whose most popular fashion accessories generally stop at a scowl and a serviceable suit with a sexual harassment lawyer’s card safely hidden in the pocket—as a vocal clotheshorse. But lest we forget that O’Reilly is one of America’s last remaining Renaissance men—in that…

Bill O'Reilly's Fox News contract had a clause allowing him to harass women with virtual impunity

Out of the many revelations—mostly depressing and dispiriting—that came out of the sexual harassment scandals that got first Roger Ailes, and later Bill O’Reilly, kicked out of their Fox News dens, one of the most notable has been learning just how disconnected the cable news network is from the wider 21st Century Fox…

Megyn Kelly and Gretchen Carlson talk sexual harassment at Fox News on Late Night and The Late Show

In a week in which former Fox News conservative foghorn and serial sexual harasser Bill O’Reilly has desperately tried to fend off the onslaught of disastrous news, completely deserved mockery, and bile-inducing details of his apparently Mr. Hyde-like past behavior, two former colleagues took to the late-night…

Bill O'Reilly "mad at God" for not protecting him against sexual harassment claims

The nature of God has vexed theologians and philosophers for millennia. “Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him,” the Bible tells us. “Because we cannot know what God is, but only what He is not, we cannot consider how He is but only how He is not,” Saint Thomas Aquinas once wrote. And so it is that we can…

Megyn Kelly calls bullshit on Bill O’Reilly’s claim that nobody complained about him

Over the weekend, The New York Times published a piece saying that Bill O’Reilly had paid $32 million in a sexual harassment settlement with a Fox News legal analyst just before Fox News renewed his contract, indicating that the network was well aware of the many sexual harassment complaints that had been made against…

Fox defends the time it re-upped Bill O'Reilly's contract right after his biggest harassment settlement ever

Six months ago, The New York Times published a longform piece of reporting that functionally ended Bill O’Reilly’s TV career, an extremely detailed accounting of at least five different settlements the Fox News star had made with women over various harassment claims over the years. The report set off a firestorm of…

Bill O'Reilly says the Las Vegas shooting is "the price of freedom"

Not to be outdone by Alex Jones, who said today that the recent mass shooting in Las Vegas was “scripted” by Democrats, similarly annoying idiot Bill O’Reilly also has a terrible take that he felt the need to share with everybody. As reported by Variety, O’Reilly posted a blog post today in which he argues that dozens…

Here’s broadcaster Lawrence O’Donnell freaking out about some nebulous hammer

Ideally, a news anchor is supposed to act as a calming, unemotional intermediary between the audience and the terrible things happening out in the world. But, unbeknownst to many, beneath that relaxed, professional exterior is often nothing but a roiling sea of rage just waiting to spill over during the commercial…

Bill O’Reilly says Trump defended Nazis because he doesn’t understand them

We can all come up with various reasons for why Donald Trump had such a hard time condemning the violent actions of the neo-Nazis and white supremacists at the Charlottesville rally—including “he sympathizes with the Nazis” and “he’s a big fucking dummy”—but disgraced cable news host Bill O’Reilly has formulated a…

Having already tried podcasting, Bill O’Reilly might pivot to video

Shortly after getting fired from Fox News, disgraced newsman Bill O’Reilly did what a lot of disgraced people do and started a podcast that was free from the judgmental attitudes and sexual harassment rules of traditional employers. It doesn’t sound like O’Reilly ever came through on his promise to reveal the “grisly”…

Bill O’Reilly promises to reveal “grisly” details about why he was fired

An all-encompassing persecution complex is a core tenet of the modern Republican party, along with the complete inability to ever admit that you did anything wrong ever. Basically, if a Republican gets busted for doing something bad, it’s not their fault for doing the thing, it’s everyone else’s fault for lying about…

Please god let this song be the theme to Bill O’Reilly’s new podcast

Extremely rich blowhard Bill O’Reilly is out of a goddamn job, booted to the curb after alleged decades of covert sexual harassment as well as confirmed decades of many more overt, televised crimes, such as race-baiting, jingoism, picking a fight with Cam’ron, and being a general asshole on TV every night. Over the…

Bill O’Reilly doesn’t need TV, he’s got a podcast

After finally deciding that Bill O’Reilly was so bad for business that it would be better to give him a few million dollars than to keep him on TV, Fox News fired the O’Reilly Factor host and cut all ties with the guy who was once the network’s top right-wing asshole. If anyone was worried about O’Reilly taking a…

Bill O’Reilly’s only novel is about a fired newsman who goes on a murderous rampage

Unemployed political commentator Bill O’Reilly is the author of a truly astonishing number of books, which range from cutesy titles like Keep It Pithy and Pinheads And Patriots to a startling number of volumes about the killing of famous people: Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy, Killing Patton, Killing Reagan, Killing…

Bill O’Reilly will walk away from Fox up to $25 million richer

Hopefully we’ve all enjoyed our moment of shadenfreude over Bill O’Reilly getting the boot at Fox News yesterday afternoon, because—as often happens when wealthy, powerful white men get in trouble for something—O’Reilly’s going to be just fine. Better than fine, even: Not only does he still have a highly profitable…

“Stephen Colbert” bids a sarcastically fond farewell to his Papa Bear, Bill O’Reilly

The vast liberal conspiracy—you know, the one that thinks serial sexual harassment over a period of decades is a crime that ought to be punished, in at least some meager way—scored an insidious win today, ousting Bill O’Reilly from his position of power at Fox News. But one tireless defender of truthiness wasn’t about…
